Beware of phishing attacks, Ledger will never ask for the 24 words of your recovery phrase. Never share them. Learn more

I own Ledger Nano / Ledger HW.1

This article is dedicated to the owners of legacy Ledger devices, such as Ledger Nano and HW.1. The Ledger HW.1 was Ledger's very first commercially available device. However, both the Ledger Nano and HW.1.1 have been discontinued.


Ledger Nano


Ledger HW.1

In order to manage crypto-assets, HW.1 and Nano had dedicated Chrome applications to manage crypto-assets that were discontinued.

You are now welcome to use our all-in-one app Ledger Live for both Desktop and Mobile devices. Unfortunately, this new app does not support Ledger Nano & HW.1. 

Since all Ledger devices, new and old, are using the same BIP-39 standard for generating the recovery phrase, if you own Nano or HW.1, you will be able to restore your old 24-word recovery phrase on the new Nano S, Nano S Plus, and Nano X. 

After the restoration of the 24-word recovery phrase, you will be able to add accounts in Ledger Live and get access to the same accounts you had in the past.
